8/10 Ant 12 February 2009
Ant here chilling (literally as its freezing) to the fine 'Illuminated' LP from Xela on Dekorder. Chilling also because the sound is kinda scary at times. This was originally released on Cassette on Digitalis industries. 'Black Scripture' sounds like a buddhist monk ceremony being interupted by someone doing the hoovering then some nutter pops in with an angle grinder and stars carving up the walls. It builds into a glorious intense full sound with layers of distortion and lots of deep atmospherics while a kind of bizarre chant is looped in the background. The second Piece 'Gilted Rose' is similarly dark and mysterious with bell sounds twinkling over eerie synths. There's a distant black metal style evil vocal that appears to possess your mind. Really quite gripping stuff from the darkside.
